1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The White Water Rafting and Zip Lining.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Make sure you are fit, the walks are pretty tough, uphill on the lungs, downhill on the knees! Come prepared to challenge your boundaries, i.e being on a zip wire if you are uncomfortable with heights and getting very wet and possibly land up in the water on the rafting!! All was safely done and no-one was made to do anything that they were uncomfortable with.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Well it did help with employment, but long transfers into Spain to do the rafting. However, all of our activities were environmentally sound.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

The holiday was good value for money. However, as you are unable to obtain lunch on any day other than your free down it would be helpful to pay for this in the price of the holiday, rather than ordering at the hotel and paying for it separately. The activities were varied and well planned through the week so you never did the same activities two days running, which gave a change for certain muscles to recover.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The amazing adventure activities and the people, the staff and other guests were all really great fun.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

You need to be flexible and confident mountain walking, mountain biking and happy to push your boundaries!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Generally, yes, used local bars, restaurants, shops, activities. Best to bring a resizable water bottle and something to put your lunch in. Guest house should reduce plastic use lots of unnecessary cling film used, plastic water bottles, plastic bags, individual tea bags sealed in plastic, disposable plastic table cloths. Overall though a great week wa had by all.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Absolutely stunning, exciting and inspiring.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Cycling on Tour de France route.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Go with the flow! Do everything but at a level you feel comfortable with -variations galore to meet individual needs. Bring walking boots not shoes unless you are happy to have wet feet all day!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Family run guest house, local guides and activities. Quite a bit of driving in private vehicle unavoidable due to activities but used effectively. Minor negative: Guest house could reduce plastic use - individual tea bags sealed in plastic, disposable plastic table cloths. Could have a recycling bin in communal area.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Amazing!

Thank you for sharing your experience. We are tackling the issue of single use plastic on our Andorran trip step by step. We have introduced use of reusable lunch boxes and are hoping to add reusable water bottles too. It’s good to hear other suggestions – table clothes, etc. This will become our focus too. I will catch up with operators by the end of this month and will bring this up as a point that we’d like to change in nearby future.
